If you hadn’t heard by now The LA Times is holding a video that shows Obama celebrating with a group of Palestinians who are completely and utterly hostile towards Israel. The tape apparently shows Obama giving a toast to former PLO operatives.

Some damning stuff right?

Well, the LA Times refuses to release the tape.

O’Reilly had a segment about this refusal by the LA Times:

Andrew McCarthy asks if there was a tape depicting McCain toasting terrorists, would the LA Times hold the tape?

Come on:

Let’s try a thought experiment. Say John McCain attended a party at which known racists and terror mongers were in attendance. Say testimonials were given, including a glowing one by McCain for the benefit of the guest of honor … who happened to be a top apologist for terrorists. Say McCain not only gave a speech but stood by, in tacit approval and solidarity, while other racists and terror mongers gave speeches that reeked of hatred for an American ally and rationalizations of terror attacks.

Now let’s say the Los Angeles Times obtained a videotape of the party.

Question: Is there any chance — any chance — the Times would not release the tape and publish front-page story after story about the gory details, with the usual accompanying chorus of sanctimony from the oped commentariat? Is there any chance, if the Times was the least bit reluctant about publishing (remember, we’re pretending here), that the rest of the mainstream media (y’know, the guys who drove Trent Lott out of his leadership position over a birthday-party toast) would not be screaming for the release of the tape?

Do we really have to ask?

Holy cow, they would be doing backflips at their good fortune on getting such a tape. It would be front page news from coast to coast.

But it involves Obama and we get a story about the tape, but no tape produced.

The blatant bias is unconscionable….
